All summer long, Tourism Winnipeg will be showing you ways to save your summer in Winnipeg.
This week, our Summer Saved hosts Cody Chomiak and Sarah Robinson head to one of Winnipeg’s greatest attractions to learn about all the amazing things to see and do at the Assiniboine Park Zoo and what steps it's taking to ensure families have a safe and fun time.
Assiniboine Park Conservancy Chief Operations Officer, Bruce Keats says 90 per cent of all exhibits are now open to explore in the 80-acre space.
“We highly encourage people in advance of their visit to purchase their tickets so they don’t have to wait in line and there’s less contact with people as they come through the zoo,” says Keats.
After trekking through the entire park, you’ll likely need to recharge with a snack.
“We have endless opportunities for you to have some treats here at the zoo. Tundra Grill is open. It is for takeout currently. As well, Winston’s Ice Cream. Later on, we’ll be opening a few more options for our guests at the zoo.”
Keep your eyes peeled for Earl Grey, who takes cute-tea to a whole new level. Born last month, this llama is one of the zoo’s newest additions.
